Subject: iRiver button usage for 3.0.

iRiver button usage for 3.0.

From: gl <gl_at_ntlworld.com>
Date: 2006-04-04

(this is a user comment for a 3.0 iRiver release, I haven't studied the
button code so I have no specific recomendations to make).

On my H140, I find the button use for traversing the options menu
irritating. For one, I think the play button (a seperate button on the
H1x0's from the joystick 'select' click) should always instantly return to
the WPS, unless you're actually inside something that uses it (eg.
confirmation to save a .cfg file, or any plugin).

As it is right now you have to use the 'stop' or the 'option' buttons to
move step-by-step all the way back out of the menu hierarchy - that's not
only unecessary, but I often use stop, and then end up pressing it several
times in anticipation, so when I get to the WPS a buffered stop usually
stops playback inadvertently (well I'm more careful now, but it's bad design
imo).

I'd also like to see 'hold play' go to the radio, and 'hold record' to enter
the recording screen (I think requiring rec to be held for 1sec is safer,
and also still allows people to use it to enable the backlight).
